    The classic short story which has led to five movie adaptations Even if you haven’t seen any of them the popular culture presence means your probably aware of the plotIt starts with François Delambre receiving a phone call from he’s sister in law who informs him that she’s killed he’s brother Such a start instantly draws the reader into the mystery of why has she confessed thisEven though I’d seen the 1986 remake it didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the storyThis is classic Science Fiction that can can easily be enjoyed everyoneI must watch the original 1958 version now

    Another book I had to read for school This was actually interesting; part sci fi part mystery This was not something I would have read myself but I was glad to notice that some other stories I have watched adapted parts of this story I also had to watch the 1980's movie version Do not watch it if you don't like body horror I do not and am probably scarred for life now thank you higher education Anyway this short kind of gave us a glimpse of sci fi in the 50's; an interesting story with the potential for

    The original story that led to the classic horror movie of the same name With a French setting the book begins with a different protagonist than what the movie portrays On receiving a call from his sister in law that she has murdered her husband by crushing him under a factory machine the story moves into flashback mode as to how the events leading to the start of the book unfolded Our protagonist's brother was working on a transmitter to shift solid matter from one place to another Starting with inanimate objects and gradually moving on to animals he decides to be the first human subject himself Here's when things go horribly wrong what disintegrates in one pod does not reintegrate in the exact same way in the receiving pod A sci fi horror story that lends the perfect chills for a Halloween read

    A very good short story It opens with a great hook that puzzles the reader Right off the killer confesses But we don't know why she killed her husband because there's no known motive Maybe she's insane but each scene we see her as uncooperative and single minded rather than crazy Even though most of us know what really happened from having seen one of the movies based on this story Langelaan has an effective manner of luring the reader onward by doling out a few excruciating details at a time until we're begging for until the resolution When we reach the wife's full confession we are totally absorbed

    This tale a parábola of the price paid by the man fo playing with the unknown give way to two good movies the first in 1958 by Kurt Newman and the second in 1986 by David Cronenberg

    I really liked this story and found it to be written beautifully The only shame is that through the popular movie the suspense has been lessened though not diminished

  9. Paul Paul says:

    Really effective piece used as the basis for the 1950's and 1980's horror flicks The story is treated as a mystery than horror though by now most of us already know how it ends Good stuff
